North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un has ordered the creation of a new “pleasure troupe” of young women to entertain him.
Kim, 32, whose country is notorious for a poor record on human rights abuses, is reportedly drawing up lists of a new generation of female companions.
The “pleasure troupes” were a practise introduced by Kim’s grandfather, North Korea’s founding father and the ‘Eternal President Kim Il-sung. However, reportedly, they were disbanded shortly after Kim Jong-Il’s, death in December 2011.

It is thought that the girls were paid-off, and South Korean newspaper Chosun Ilbo claimed the women were given approximately $4,000 (a huge sum in North Korea) and various household appliances.
However, he has now decided to revive a source of entertainment — something that has become a tradition for North Korean leaders.
Government officials would conduct countrywide searches for the most attractive young women, typically taking 30 to 40 every year, who would become singers, maids and/or dancers following an interview with the leader.
The prettiest one would be expected to become the leader’s mistress, eventually to be passed on to a high ranking military or government officials after reaching their mid-20s.
